Low or high tech assistive devices can help people with disabilities live independently. Sometimes all that's needed is an app! Our 26 years of experience can help people identify technology that meets their needs.

Our experienced staff have information on assistive technology and adaptive equipment. Our Assistive Technology Loan and Demonstration Center offers 1000+ items to try. Formal and informal assessments, advocacy, information and referral, and equipment trials are services available through this program.

Make informed choices about adaptive equipment, and find cost effective ways to meet your adaptive equipment needs.
